My dealer called me today,my stamps have arrived. So after work,I went and picked up my new Spectre II and Mack Bros. Varminter 3.0 suppressors. I got them all taken apart right now,and will treat everything with DOT 5 silicone oil tomorrow before I try them out.

The wait time for the stamp approval was 4 1/2 months.

Congrats!

I haven't heard of using DOT 5, but it makes sense.

What all should you do to a new can, was not aware that there is prep need? I won't have mine for a little while so might as well get ready to take care of it.

I posted an article that I read a while back on another thread. It's mainly for Rimfire suppressors, but since my .3o caliber can is serviceable I figured I'd do it also. It just mskes it easier to clean the baffles off without having to scrub them clean.

I haven't heard about the Mack Bros Varminter, you got a link to that?

I am hoping my Spectre II comes back in the next few weeks, it is an early Nov submission. My 10/22 barrels should be on the way back from Morgan as we speak. For sure I will treat my Spectre with DOT 5 before I use it. I will use my cerakote oven, should be perfect for that.

That's a nice silencer, not cheap though. That covers all my fun calibers, would be nice. Don't tell Fireman, he'll have to have one.

Congrats on getting the stamps.
I went ahead and bought the pure 350 silicone oil to do mine with. I haven't gotten around to treating mine yet. I've tried to clean the Spectre II by hand before and it's not a fun process. Better in the tumbler.
